Moving home can be a stressful experience. Relocating to a different city or country on top of that can add a heap of challenges that will torture even the most organised among us. So what can you do to minimise the chaos of moving? As one of the premier removal companies in Sydney, here are our top tips on keeping your move under control.
Pack with purpose
Any Sydney removalist will tell you the art of settling in quickly is as much in the packing up of your previous house as it is in the unpacking of your new one. Don’t leave it until the last minute. Get organised early.
Use the opportunity to declutter and throw things out. Make an extra few bucks by hosting a garage sale and selling unwanted goods online, or earn yourself some good karma by donating to charity.
Label your goods
You may not have the time or energy to unpack all your boxes in one day. Clearly label everything and create a system that enables you to prioritise. Keeping a “first night box” full of essentials like bedding, clothing and personal hygiene items is also a great idea.
Prepare your new home before you move
After the long process of finding a house, signing paperwork and enduring endless inspections, it can be tempting to rush in as soon as you get the keys. Taking a couple of weeks to get organised beforehand however is key to making a smooth transition.
Visit your new home and take care of basics like connecting the internet and organising meter readings. Give the place a good clean and get pest control in to take care of all infestation risks. Get the space in peak condition before you move.
Measure the rooms and plan ahead. Allocating space for furniture is essential but if you have time, also consider the smaller things. This will help you to label boxes and provide your professional removalist in Sydney with specific instructions.
You can also use this time to scope out the neighbourhood. Check for nearby parking, places to grab a quick coffee and local takeaway options. These will come in very handy on moving day!
